Lake Poway Day Camp staff have a unique blend of maturity, enthusiasm, patience, creativity, and a genuine desire to work with youth and teens. They enjoy singing camp songs, leading outdoor adventures, teaching creative group games, and encouraging campers to try new things.
Staff focus on creating a safe environment where campers can develop positive peer relationships, learn new skills, and have fun! They truly are the key to our success.
All Lake Poway Day Camp staff undergo a lengthy and thorough interview and background check process. This process includes reference checks, fingerprinting, completing a medical exam, and drug screening. Staff are also required to be CPR and First Aid certified.
Staff attend a week-long training before Lake Poway Day Camp begins. During training, staff participate in workshops that focus on effective communication, group management skills, child development, creative play, positive discipline, and emergency procedures.
